Joining information

Joining paperwork will be sent to you during the term prior to your child starting at Copthorne Prep.

All children are offered another opportunity to spend some time with us prior to formally starting at the nursery/school. This may be through another taster session in the nursery or at our ‘Moving Up Day’ held in June, to which all children joining the school into Reception to Year 4, at the start of the new academic year, are invited.

Your joining paperwork will include information regarding the school uniform. New parents are invited to make an appointment to visit Mrs Mandy Rogers, in our school shop, for the purchase of all relevant items.

Parent Class Representatives will also make contact with our new parents and will give you a very warm welcome, as well as helping you settle into the Copthorne Prep family.

Another Virtual Open Day!


Our next Virtual Open Day will take place on Saturday 3 October where we will share a link to an exclusive Open Morning page. The page will contain more information about our school and videos showing ‘A day in the Nursery/Pre-Prep/Prep School’.

Should you wish to speak to the Headmaster & Head of Pre-Prep in person, you are also invited for a 1:1 (socially distanced) chat at your convenience.

To book an appointment, or to register your place for the Virtual Open Day, please email our Registrar, Kathryn Billingham-West on
